We are a school with 2 classes.
Using Windows 7 Pro with domian logon

The students and teachers are by default prevented to install programs.
This means that all the time adobe, java and other applications says update available.

Everytime they need to call the administrator to put in the password.
I would like to make the teacher member of a group that would permit them to install these updates

Is there a build in group in Windows 2008 that can do this?

I would like a solution that is not to distribute via GPO/AD
